TATLONG buwan nang buntis ang misis ni Konsi Alfred Vargas, si Yasmine, na dumaranas ng maselang pagdadalantao. Kaya naman humihing ng dasal ang aktor.
Sa social media post ni Alfred, ibinalita nitong 13 weeks na ang dala-dala ni Yasmine sa sinapupunan. Ito bale ang magiging ika-4 nilang anak.
“With immense gratitude to God, the Vargas family is elated to share that my Amore, Yasmine, is now 13 weeks pregnant with our fourth child! .
“God has blessed me with a wonderful life. This is mainly because He has not only given me a beautiful wife, inside and out, but a brave one as well. Yasmine is truly a fighter.”
Paglalahad ni Alfred, dumaraan sa matinding paghihirap ang kanyang asawa dahil mayroon itong Hyperemesis Gravidarum na may kasamang pagsusuka at pagkahilo. Kaya naman naapektuhan na rin ang timbang nito.
“Kung alam lang nila, Amore ko, ang matinding paghihirap na pinagdaanan at pinagdaraanan mo…
“It’s her 4th pregnancy suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum all day with severe nausea and vomiting.
“She can’t even drink water nang hindi nagsusuka after. She lost several kgs in the first 3 weeks.”
Actually, ikalawang pagkakataon na pala ni Yasmine na habang buntis ay may GAD. At kakabit nito ang pagkakaroon ng anxiety at panic attack.
“This is her 2nd pregnancy with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder). And she experiences relentless anxiety and panic attacks (without any triggers).”
At dahil sa GAD kinailangang mag-bedrest ni Yasmine sa buong first trimester nito. Kaya hiling ni Alfred na ipagdasal ang kanyang asawa para maging maayos ang buong siyam na buwang pagdadalantao.
“Bedrest siya buong first trimester. She even had multiple days with IV just to get enough vitamins and treatment.
“We are hoping that things will get better each day that passes. So far, with God’s grace and the reliable support system that we have (doctors, experts, friends and family), Yasmine is able to steadfastly beat every challenge that arrives.
“We humbly ask for your prayers for Yasmine’s and our little baby’s great perfect health and well-being.
We’re also counting on your support and understanding on this journey of ours as we welcome the newest member of the family this coming January.”
Sa huli, sinabi pa ni Alfred na, “Truly, family is love. And our family just got bigger. There’s bigger love to share soon!
“To the mother of my children (now four children!), Yasmine, I love you with all my heart. The world is much a better place with mighty mothers like you!
“I’m here for you always. Mahal na mahal kita.”
